    I purchased this camera for my daughter for xmas and it would not operate for her properly it continued to shut off constantly...... I unfortunately ignored her, but was able to send the product back to the company for them to repair. We received the camera back with a note stating that the camera is in working order. We placed new batteries in the camera and it shut off again within 15 minutes.

    I purchased her a different brand of camera (KODAK) what a difference. I will never buy samsung camera again......................................................

Try to use lithium batteries.

Do the power reset, by removing the battery for a minute and reattaching them again.

Even with new batteries, the camera turns off after a few seconds


Be sure you have real fresh Alkaline batteries or fresh recharched NiMh batteries.
The best rechargeable batteries are the ENELOOP (from Sanyo), these have a very, very low discharge, so after a week the camera still works without the problem of turning off after a few seconds.
